Visual Studio 2019 bug when using two screens with different resolution

I have two screen on is 4k resolution and the other (the laptop screen) is high defintion.

When using both screens to edit code and forms in VS 2019, the outlines of the buttons and textboxes etc frequently do not match the location of the underlying graphic. It is very annoying to say the least. If I click around I can get them to match up temporarily, but it does not stay.

If I run the code on just the laptop screen, there is no issue.

My computer is using Windows 10 enterprise which is updated regularly to the current version. Visual Studio is also updated to the most current version.

My laptop is an MSI GP63 Leopard 8rd and it has a good graphics card. It easily drives both screens and I did not have this problem with VS 2017.

So clearly there is a bug in Visual Studio that is causing the problem.

Please fix and advise. Thank you.

If you've not already done so, report it to MS using Visual Studio's "Report a Problem" facility.
Be sure to provide enough information for someone to reproduce the issue you're seeing.

I did that report as you suggested, but there has been no reply.

I would think Microsoft would be monitoring bug reports here as well.

They certainly should be able to duplicate the bug. If they have a problem duplicating it, they can always ask me a question about it.



I do want to thank you for responding.

If you've not received the automated email response, something may have gone wrong - give it a few hours and try again.
While these forums are useful when you have what you think is a bug to gather other's opinions to confirm if you are right, they're not the right place for the bug report to get tracked and followed up by MS - that's what "Report a Problem" is for.

I would just like to add in that I'm experiencing the same thing when I hook up my laptop to my monitor and start working from there while Visual Studio is up and running.

My solution is just to restart Visual studio after I've hooked up the monitor (or removed it since the same thing happens then).
